Safegarding Question:

At school, we receive phone calls about children from Operation Compass. What does this mean?


  • Creative Quality Standard for schools (both primary and secondary), accredited by Arts Council England.
  • Enables settings to develop and celebrate their commitment to the arts and cultural education of children and young people.
  • Helps schools to embed arts, culture and creativity, which in turn supports a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum and stregthens progression.

Our Big Ambition:

for evey child at Hazel to be able to express themselves through the arts.
